"The Current PROVEN Top Notch
Best Internet Security Software
for 2013, 2014 and beyond!"
Before you get to know the current best software let's explain the two
types of anti spyware and virus software that exist!
First type have 2 main features: A scanner
as well as real time protection... You can call them Type 1.
Second type have only a scanner. You can call them Type 2.
Why should you care?
Because you cannot have more than one software of the first type or
else they won't work well together - they conflict with each
other. However you can have as many software of the second type as you
That is crucial to understand...
Anti Virus software
Real Time Protection & Scanner
Security Essentials - this is totally free software from
That software is all you need for Internet Security against viruses!
Just install it, and it will protect your computer, and approximately once a month remember to run a
scan with it! Make sure to remove any other security software that have real time protection that you may have!
Anti Malware software
Real Time Protection & Scanner
This software specializes against malware (not viruses) They are two different kinds of "bad objects"!
Anti-Malware Pro - This is the one software I recommend you pay for! They do have a free version but the pro version
is way more powerful. This software has real time protection like
Microsoft Security Essentials. This means they will conflict with one
another, but there are some tweaks you can make to avoid this, read
them at this link in Malwarebytes forum!
to use the scanner it has approximately once every month! You can also
get the free version of Malwarebytes, it won't be as powerful as the
pro version and won't have real time protection, but it's sufficient!
Those are the two must have security software to use...
Microsoft Security Essentials (100% free) - Software of first type, it has real time protection and a scanner and specializes against viruses!
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro (one time small fee around $25) - Software of first type, it has real time protection and a scanner and specializes against malware!
your computer has those two only your computer is in safe hands, even
if for Malwarebytes you get the free version not the pro one!
with just a Scanner
are like icing sugar to the cake - these won't protect your computer
unless you use them to make a scan! Meaning they don't have real time
protection, this also means they won't conflict with Microsoft Security
Essentials or Malwarebytes or any other software which has real time
That also means you can download as many of these as you want, although remember they take up hard disk space!
Here are some good ones:
Malicious Software Removal Tool
- This is a free software from Microsoft and
you get a new version of it every month (automatically with Windows
Update) - just open it and scan with it. To open it click Start and
type in MRT and then click on MRT application.
If you think you don't have it you can download
it from Microsoft Site.
Free Online Scanner - This is another scanner specialized to detect viruses!

manual or check their forums to learn how to disable the real time

This software protects your browser (which is the tool you use to
access the Internet, e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, etc) when
you're buying online, logging in to websites, etc.
Rapport - This free software is a browser extension,
meaning it's installed to your browser to help protect your login
passwords, when you're buying etc. Watch the
video on their website to see how this protects you. It's absolutely free and works on all browsers!
software will make sure your computer will keep in good "health
& shape". Just like any other machine your computer requires
maintenance... It's speed and performance will remain top notch! You can download all of them. Computer
- This is a software you already have if you have Windows. One feature
it has can free you up to 25 GB or more, it has a hidden feature called
System Restore and Shadow Copies that very few know about - you can read step by step instructions on how to use this on our blog!
Cleanup will also remove so called "junk files" on your computer - but
there's a way more powerful software to do this - and it's free, it's
Ccleaner also has other features like a registry cleaner.
- This is also another free software, very similar to Ccleaner but it
has more features! One feature it has is called Registry Defragmenter,
which is different than a disk defragmenter, which is our next software
in the list...
Auslogics Disk Defrag Free -
This is a disk defragmenter much more advanced and powerful than the
one that is installed with Windows! Remember to read their manual to
learn how to use these software if you're new to all this. This is a
Revo Uninstaller Freeware Portable
- This is a software to uninstall software from your computer that's
it's main function and why I have listed it here - unlike Windows
Add/Remove programs if control panel this does a much better job at
completely removing software! This is a free software!
Note: Download the portable version, this means you won't have to install this software on your computer!
Final Special Note
highly important that you read the manual and/or instructions on their
forum to learn how to use these software properly and more importantly
For software that modify the registry (Ccleaner, Glary
Utitlities and Revo Uninstaller) always do a registry backup before you
clean! Ccleaner will ask you and do backup, Glary Utilities
automatically do backup and for Revo Uninstaller you have to enable
backups in the Settings window!
Here are some other free software, these are used to test your
computer! Where possible download the portable version, you don't need
to install them!
Crystal Disk - this software will test your hard disk!
Core Temp - this software will tell you the temparature of your computer!
MemTest86 - this tests your computer memory!
Speccy - this software will tell you every detail about your computer specifications, e.g. manufacturere, amount of RAM you have, etc!
